September 20th, 2011 9:17pm EDT

Robert Pattinson Twilight star Robert Pattinson has secretly started work on a new album.

The actor, who provided soundtrack tunes for the first Twilight film, is recording as much material as possible before he has to hit the promotion trail again for the final films in the vampire franchise.

A source tells Us Weekly magazine, "The album Rob will make will be guitar-based and drums, very organic-sounding, nothing pop. Like stripped-down Ray LaMontagne meets Van Morrison.

"Music is his first love! He's tortured because he avoids it. When he's sitting around jamming in the studio, it's his favourite moment of life... It's an obsession for him."
